Try switching the eide ribbons from the CDrom to the hard drive. Sometimes, the computer tries to read the cdrom as the primary and the hard drive as the slave. I generally just leave the CDrom out, place the hard drive in with ribbon and let it register in bios.

My hp pc wont turn on whats wrong with it? Do i need to get a new pc or can it be fixed? There is an error code when i run the boot menu " biohd-5"


Pressing F11 (see User Guide) when booting may lead you to recovery options, but I would backup data first... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=4007138

The hard drive, motherboard, or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore or Reload on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer. Good luck.

My computer doesn't detect my hard drive.


Try removing the data cable connectors on the hard drive and motherboard and the reconnect them. Then boot up your computer. If it does not boot up and the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer working again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive, plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

My sony vaio pcg-551l won't go past "no operating system"


If this is the first time your trying to start up this computer try to restart it. Sometimes brand new laptops can fail to find the operating system on first startup. If this isn't the case it sounds like your Hard Drive is either disconnected or has had a critical failure.

Dvd/cd-rw drive doesnt appear in my computer


<p>I had the same problem after running the software "SuperISO", this software reset my DVD drive and make it becomes a hard drive instead. Google SuperISO you find more info about it.</p>
<p>Anyway, I have to reinstall window vista, and after boot up, device manager does not know the DVD drive or displays it at all. </p>
<p>Accidentally I resolved this issue a few days latter. One day when the computer is off, I plug in a new device "Optical mouse", and boot up my computer. The program automatic detect a new hardware run and install a necessary driver for a new hardware, after that, it also detect my DVD drive and install the driver for it. </p>
<p>After the computer boot up, I got my DVD drive back and it working fine like before, does not cost me a dime.</p>
<p>In your case, try to plug in any new device and boot up your pc. Good Luck</p>

Gateway 200ARC goes to "Last Known Good Configuration" screen


try reseating the dvd drive and then go into the BIOS to be sure that the drive is being recognized. Actually go into the area of the BIOS that shows the name of the dvd drive that it recognizes.

It it does recognize the dvd drive properly then try other boot cd's. It still may not recognize them.

If so try another known good dvd drive in the laptop and if you have the same problem then take out the hard drive and then see if the system will boot up off of the dvd drive then. If it still doesn't boot then the motherboard is bad.

If it does boot then that means the new hard drive is bad and shorting out the dvd drive controller on the motherboard and the hard drive would need to be replaced.

Hope this helps clear up things for you and sorry for not responding sooner.

No Hard Disc found after crash


Compaq uses F10 at boot to initiate the recovery program resident on the hard drive partition normally called "Recovery". If you cannot initiate the hard drive at boot then press F1 to get to setup and see if the hard drive is recognized there. If it is not then you will have to troubleshoot the hard drive.
If you have another laptop to try the hard drive out or a laptop to IDE hard drive adapter  (cheap) to connect to a desktop computer as a slave drive you will either verify that the hard drive is bad or it is good and a boot sector problem is at hand. Also if you can get the drive recognized as a slave drive you can either rescue data or format the drive.
These are preliminary steps so post again when you have more information. Steve Medley

Hard drive not found


Wayneard is correct. When you install a brand new hard drive as the ONLY hard drive in the computer, there is no operating system loaded. The computer will try to boot from the hard drive and stop. Switch your boot order to have the CD boot first, and be sure you have the operating system installation CD in your CD drive.

Also, double check your hard drive connections. Be sure it is in the "master" position on the hard drive cable. If there is a connection problem, the system will complain after CD start that there is no hard drive available to install the operating system on!

Good luck.
